About the class

Some animals eat meat. Some animals eat plants and nuts. And other animals? Well, they drink blood. Join wildlife explorer Coyote Peterson to get up close and personal with these blood-thirsty creatures of the animal kingdom: leeches, piranha, mosquitos, lamprey, and more. In this interactive class, you’ll find out how these animals prey on blood, what to do if you encounter them, and as Coyote knows all too well, what it’s like when they get under your skin.
